Contact Dance Performance Nights

Artist In Residence

Upcoming Performance Date is: Jan 17, 2018

A community performance night that welcomes contact dancers of all skill levels.

Contact dance performance is defined as a solo, duet, trio, quartet or group work that is primarily based upon:
- following momentum (one's own and the momentum of others)
- rolling point of contact
- balancing over centre of gravity
- sloughing
- lifting or moving using momentum rather than muscle power
- “listening” with one’s skin surface

Works may be improvised, score-based or pre-set.

Attendance: Free
Concession: Pizza $3

Start Time:
8:45 pm
